One of my dad’s favorite candies is chocolate-covered cherry cordials. I decided to re-create the flavor in these cookies. They were a hit with my taste testers! For extra ease, you could prepare the dough ahead and freeze up to 3 months. —Noelle Myers, Grand Forks, North Dakota

  • 1 package (17-1/2 ounces) sugar cookie mix
  • 3/4 cup chopped dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup cherry preserves
  • 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup white baking chips


  1. Place the cookie mix, cherries, butter and egg in a large bowl; beat until well mixed. Shape into 1-in. balls; place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until edges are browned.
  2. Meanwhile, place cherry preserves in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir in chocolate chips until melted. If necessary, microwave in 10- to 20-second intervals until chips are melted; stir until blended.
  3. Using the back of a tablespoon, make an indentation in the center of each warm cookie. Fill indentations with cherry mixture. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. Microwave white baking chips until melted. Drizzle over cookies. Let stand until set.
To make ahead: Cookies can be stored for 1 week in an airtight container at room temperature.
